NPR's Scott Simon's personal, heartfelt reflections on his beloved Chicago Cubs, replete with club lore, memorable anecdotes, frenetic fandom and wise and adoring intimacy that have made the world champion Cubbies baseball's most tortured—and now triumphant—franchise.

Heartbreak and hope. Charmed and haunted. My Cubs is Scott Simon’s love letter to his Chicago Cubs, World Series winners for the first time in over a century. Replete with personal reflections, club lore, memorable anecdotes, and tales of frenetic fandom, My Cubs recounts the franchise’s pivotal moments with the wise and adoring intimacy of a long-suffering devotee and Chicago native. Simon illustrates how the condition of “Cubness” has defined the life of so many Chicagoans and how the team’s fortunes became intertwined with the aspirations of its faithful. With the curse finally broken on November 2, 2016, My Cubs is the perfect portrayal of paradise lost and found.

May 30, 2017 Kasa Cotugno rated it it was amazing review of another edition Shelves: audio, location-usa-chicago, subject-sports-baseball I loved hearing Scott Simon read this in his own voice, hearing his passion for the game and his team coming through.His career has spanned years and continentsMay 13, 2017 Tarita Henry rated it it was amazing By someone who loves the Cubs as much as I do, and the best part is hearing Simon's voice as you read“Step on over and say helloNPR journalist Scott Simon has better Cubs-fan bona-fides than most: Cubs manager Charlie Grimm was Simons uncle, and long-time Cubs announcer Jack Brickhouse was his godfather.Every Cubs fan has the same story of long-suffering loyalty and spookiness about the goat curse, but every fan also has his or her own version of what its been like all these yearsWhile nothing could re-capture the thrill of seeing it live as it happened, it comes closeThe seats at Wrigley roil with 43,000 Cubs fans who take a sudden deep breath at the same time and fall silentThere's nostalgia and humor in all of his stories

Instead, I bring my right arm through with the power of a rocket burstHe’s not Derek, Gehrig, or the Mick, but some malevolent, swearing, gob- spitting, steel-bearded, pinstriped bruteI did not enjoy this bookJournalist Simon (NPR's Weekend Edition), a lifelong, die-hard Cubs fan, has written a personal reflection of his beloved Cubs and the journey to the championship seasonWhatever the case, I think its a little silly to be worrying much about the starters at this pointYeah, we've dreamt itBut the fat of his bat misses by six inches, and I hear—43,000 fans hear—his swing whiff the air like a tree cracking and falling.“Stee-rike!”The Brute steps back to spit and swearI could feel the heartbeat of my next bookIn a way it reminded me of IN GOD WE TRUST, ALL OTHERS PAY CASH (aka A CHRISTMAS STORY), but his musings, memories, and constant changing of lyrics/poetry to things about the Cubs just didn't appeal to me that muchNot to mention that I am a Scott Simon fan from his many years with NPR 48a4f088c3
